DISCLAIMER: I not has Fuzzburger.


It was a lovely spring evening in Sandford. Clear and calm, just a bit warmer than was usual for the time of year.

Danny Butterman stepped out into the yard behind the new police station, momentarily silhouetted in the light that spilled out from inside. Party noises leaked out with the light -- pre-party, really, until the squad were off duty and could reconvene at the pub -- then muted as he closed the door. He stretched a bit, and looked up at the sky. moreCollapse )

It may just be my own Fuzz sci-fi thing I'm doing, but when Betelgeuse, all I could think of was that Zaphod and Ford were now officially homeless.

Very cute, though. I love random disasters in Sandford! XD

I would pay millions upon millions of imaginary happy dollars for that crossover.

That's exactly what crantz said!

I can't even tell you how awesome this story is, because it caused me to immediately run off and read all your other Hot Fuzz fanfic, and now my awesome-ometer is all busted and non-functional due to overload.

Thank you for writing! It is much of happiness-inducing.

(You had me at "Girl Who Looks Like a W".)

Typo, btw

P.S.: You have a Cartwright/Wainwright swap in their first scene, just after the supernova.

When dealing with the vast distances of interstellar space, time -- and our concept of time -- starts to get tricky. The things we see in the sky are only as current as the speed of light allows. The moon we see is ten seconds old. The sun in the sky actually happened eight minutes ago.

The red giant Betelgeuse marks Orion's right shoulder (his right, our left). Betelgeuse, I'm sure you know, is getting on in years, and likely to go nova as soon as the mood strikes. Light from Betelgeuse only reaches us after 500 (and a bit) years of hard slog. So bear in mind that the following sentence, while accurate, is only accurate from a particular spatiotemporal point of view:

Just then, Betelgeuse exploded.


I loved this bit (well, loved the whole thing, but this part sticks out); it's very Douglas Adams-esque.

Thank you! The Tiny-Headed Blokes are Gemini, or however you spell them. They're...up high somewhere. I used to know this stuff a lot better.

I was horrified when I first heard that the UK got Fox News. Then I remembered that fucking Rupert Murdoch owns the thing, so naturally...

"Why are you covered in mud?"
Wainwright looked Nicholas up and down. "Why are you?"

Lolz. I'm half asleep right now, but this was lovely. You always manage to nail the slightly sensical weirdness of Sandfordites :)

Exploding!

Not Betelgeuse but still made me think of you:

this was really good and unique. i liked the conversation about the super-pets. pure geekiness.

Thank you! I love the Super-Pets, even though part of me will never quite believe that they exist.

Okay, admit it...you have a summer cottage IN Sandford and personally stalk the real Nicholas and Danny, don't you? Don't you!?

*grinning away* I don't know why, but the first thing that popped into my head after reading this was Nicholas saying to Danny (from underneath him in the ditch) "You had me at KaBOOOOOM!" I also had a vague idea of Danny teasing Nicholas about staging the whole thing for his birthday.

Heeee!

That was fabulous - the voices were spot on all through and it was wonderfully mad in the way that the movie was. Huzzah!

This was awesome. I actually listened to the podfic version of this a few days ago. Well done!
